Collectors' Chat - Volume Two
"My collection is rubber stamps. Those are stamps that
you make cards with. They are fun and you don't have to be
an artist so anyone can do it! Believe it or not the card
looks better if you don't try to make it perfect. My favorite
line of stamps is D.T.'s You can save a lot of money using
stamps instead of buying cards."

so I started one by taking them off my Mom's mail. After a while, I

"I started my collection when I was 8. I had a friend named Elizabeth, and she had a horse
collection. She was older then me, and I was really in to the, "I wanna be big, and if I
do what they do I'll be a big girl. "stuff". So I started my collection of stamps.
I have at least a 100 now, and it feels so great to have something that you have a lot of,
and you can take out and remember the past."

"My name is Jill and I'm 12 years old and I have over 800 postcards in my postcard collection. I have gotten them from all over from as close as my hometown Brandon, Florida to the small kingdom of Swaziland in Africa after I wrote to them begging for a postcard. May of my postcards I get from visiting the places (Japan, England, Switzerland, Australia just to name a few) and the other I get from my friends and family who visit there or from writing to goverment officals in the area. I've been working on this collection for about 8 years ever since the first time I went out of the country."Collector's Corner
